I found these two sets on craigslist for only $30 in like new condition and I'm picking it up tonight. I've heard it is a bit advanced so we probably won't use it for a while, but it was too good of a deal to pass up.

I've looked at the program before and did like it, but I am wondering, since it is published by Alpha Omega, if there is a lot of religious content?

The only Alpha Omega product we've used is Lifepac math, and the only reference to religion is a verse on the first page.

I found this review about Horizons reading/phonics. The 2nd to last paragraph may be helpful.

Thank you! I looked and looked for that exact review, but the site was having issues at the time. Kept saying someone was trying to edit the page or something? I thought it was mostly non-religious, but I wanted to be sure before replying, so thank you.

Picked it up. It's in brand new condition, really, except she had it spiral bound, which works for me. I flipped through it and there are a few pages that have pictures of a cross, Bible, church, or prayer hands in the Phonics and Reading books, so no big deal for us.

The spelling books I am not sure we will use. They have whole lessons on Bible verses or stories. I wasn't really set on using Horizon for that anyways, and 1st grade is a ways off.

Anyways, for both complete sets it was too good of a deal to pass up, so I'm happy.

No problem.

I'm glad you're happy with it.
